of our abilities to inject new skills into the economy to build jobs that need to be built in america to sustain our growth. it is critical step that we can take now. we have got to realign the corporate tax code. everyone agrees. we just did a survey that includes members of the general public. 70% of the general public believes we need to simplify. we cannot have the tax code that has higher rates and more complexity than anywhere else in the world. we have got to address the system that really hurts- innovation and high technology economy. we did not worry about those when we were doing well, but they are getting in the way of progress we have got to go through the process in a simpler and more logical and efficient way. this is the number one thing thousands of business people said was the biggest barrier to investing in the u.s. we have got to upgrade our infrastructure, but we have got to focus on those that are economically important. we have got to understand the things that are driving up the cost of doing business. we know what those are, but we need a plan for going forward

for the workplace. we are not going to be the world's most innovative economy. second, in some ways, more surprising for me, it was brought to us by the former chief of secretary of the army, who talked about the problems in our education system and the relationship to the armed forces. the inability of some 70% of americans actually qualified for service in the armed forces ought to be a red flag for anyone. now, yes, there are other reasons for that. incarceration, obesity, but a fair amount of it is that the people can't pass the basic skills test to get into the military. so just imagine a country -- a developed country, a powerful country in the world. and we can't get the basic tasks. analyzing data secretary of state is realizing how few people how -- how they learn foreign languages, the fact that we don't have people who are prepared to go into the intelligence agency and we are lobbying ourselves appellate in literally the national security infrastructure of the country. so most importantly, it is a tragedy that people will not be prepared for a good job and will therefore have nowhere els

. there is no question about it. yet liberals will deny it's happening or say it's all because of the bad economy. which is flat out false. in 1992 the black unemployment rate was 14.3%. in 2012, this year, the black unemployment rate is 14.3%. exactly the same. in hispanic precinct, the situation similar. this is about a dramatic change that is overwhelming the united states of america. not economic ma lace. when you have more than 100 million americans living in a home receiving stuff from the government, again, outside of medicare and social security, we're not counting that -- then you have a large dependence on the federal government. and what does that do? well, it saps motivation. why bust your tail when the feds will give you enough to get by? america became great because of individual self reliance, hard working people took chances, suffered, created things that helped the country. every day americans empowered this nation. not the federal and state governments. they're in place to protect us and to see that social order is kept. not to provide cradle to grave security. the founding fathers did

by $600 billion, the largest one-year reduction in history but will throw the economy back into a recession. unemployment will go from 7.9% currently to over 9%. i don't think that's going to happen. i do think we'll go over the cliff, not have a deal before it happens. i think it will be fixed shortly after this -- after they storm the castle with pitch forks and torches but this is potentially the worst fiscal policy since the end of the great depression when we went into an austerity program too early and threw the economy back into a recession back in the '30s. so this is serious stuff. but notice everything we just talked about the meetings each one is having. notice who's not having a meeting. the president is not having a meeting with john boehner. the congressional leaders aren't coming to the white house. there will be no direct negotiations this week. there's not -- if there is going to be a deal here, it won't be done until the middle to the end of december. all of this so far is just kabuki theat
